. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think it would be a position now where minnesota could be in play or oregon. we see polls with the races in mid single digits in the states and minnesota right now and finally talking about it a little bit. romney doesn't have a single field office there. they didn't make the effort and stuck trying to win ohio. i don't think they can. >> just to be clear, giving alaska to romney? >> that's in -- leaning. >> bold. >> to your point, we did the maps separately and didn't know what we were going to do until we decided but the play's only about eight or nine states. right? obviously the others we agree on -- >> none of us have the same maps. >> that's right. >> steve and i are very, very close. steve has virginia going blue and not so confident and putting colorado blue today but i might change tomorrow. that's razor close and not the difference for obama. i'm giving you see ohio blue, new hampshire blue, iowa and nevada and wisconsi

pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back

of photo-ops for the republican nominee, as well. romney has just a few days to get his message out. he hasn't been consistent in the past, so now what does he do? as for president obama, he's canceled his campaign events today and tomorrow. instead he will survey damage in new jersey alongside republican governor chris christie. he needs to show the country that government works and government resources are important and when a big disaster strikes, you need the federal government to step in and work with state and local governments. now is the time for the president to show true leadership and i think he is and according to one republican and romney surrogate, he is. chris christie has praised the president's efforts but had a little patience for a fox news question about a possible photo-op with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to flj to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4
